Teacher Education Electronic Portfolio

The teacher education programs use an electronic portfolio system to collect artifacts that are required for admission, state licensure, and graduation.

As of summer 2018, Tk20 as a brand will change to Watermark. You may find references to Tk20 on our website and documentation but these refer to the Watermark system.
